Lindsay Wilcox-Reid is the founder of Equipilates™.
She was the first British Dressage Registered Trainer in the UK to recognise the potential of Pilates to transform riders and commit to train as a professional teacher of classical Pilates; she holds the Level 3 instructor certification in classical Pilates, is a qualified Specialist Biomechanics Coach™ (Intelligent Training Systems) and also a Master Trainer for Biomechanics Education™. She is member of the Intrinsic Biomechanics Association, the Sports Therapy Association and has recently been invited to join the International Association of Equestrian Biomechanics as an honorary lifetime member.
Lindsay is a Group 3 Rider with experience of competing and training horses up to advanced levels in dressage. She is an experienced and inspirational teacher, dedicated to promoting correct training principles and bringing the biomechanics and musculature of each individual horse and rider combination together in harmony. She is able to show you how to open doors, both within yourself and your horse, which may have seemed forever locked!
Lindsay is in a unique position to train the rider's body and mind whilst incorporating correct development of the horse according to classical principles. She has an incredibly sensitive eye for the smallest detail, and through her insight and perception of asymmetric movement along with her skills in functional testing for biomechanical dysfunction, she is able to take your performance to a whole new level, whether you are a weekend rider or an international equestrian athlete.
Lindsay takes referals from other equestrian professionals (trainers, equine physios, vets and saddle fitters) to help their clients with postural issues which can affect the horse in ways ranging from difficulty with lateral movements in one direction to persistent saddle fit problems or lameness caused by poor rider balance/alignment. She teaches through the UK and beyond.
